saying the embassy of the united states and cairo condemns the continuing effort by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of muslims. as we condemn efforts to offend believers of all religions. respect for religious beliefs is a cornerstone of american democracy. we firmly reject the actions by those who abuse the unver a right of free speech to hurt the religious beliefs of others. there was also protest over the video at the u.s. consulate in benga.i, lib ra. report says armed mob set fire to that building. personnel company manpower says only 17% of the companies plan the hire in the next three months in the u.s. and that is down. it blames uncertainty over election, federal budget and europe. moody's reports the u.s. could lose credit status until budget deal is reached. wall street was up today. dow gained 69. nasdaq finished ahead half a point. mayor factor of economic woes is the unemployment. fewer jobs in june to make job-hunting more competitive. there are places where so many good jobs are available. companies can't hire enough workers. fast enough. senior nation
, and that's, of course, a key swing state, believe that barack obama was not born in the united states. so this jocular, sarcastic reference to it recently by governor romney is not a joke. that this is something you can keep igniting and keep stirring up. aren't you astounded that a huge percentage of actual voters in the republican party in ohio, a reasonable state, believe the guy wasn't born in this country? >> sure. and same percentage -- same type of percentage believe he's still a muslimeen though it's clear that he never was and never has been. look, there are still warring flags out there and to my flends and colleagues in pennsylvania, don't take anything for granted. the voter i.d. law if it stands is going to hurt us. there's no question about that, chris. i still believe the debates are going to be a factor and governor romney can recover in the debates. lastly, don't believe for a minute that they're not going to spend any money in pennsylvania. the super pac will come in the last six or seven weeks and try to swamp the state with ads. swamp the state. >> i agree. all those p
that threatens the very viability of the united states senate. last july the obama administration used the flimsiest of arguments, granted themselves the authority to waive federal welfare work requirements. and whether or not what they, the obama administration intends to accomplish with these waivers is good welfare policy has been the subject of robust debate. i'm not here to argue the merits or lack thereof of the underlying welfare policy goals of the obama administration. what i am here to do is to make a plea to my fellow senators, as senators we simply cannot let this action stand. if we fail to stand together as senators in defense of our constitutional duty to be the ones to draft legislation, we might as well pack up our bags and go home, because we will have opened the door for this administration and future administrations to unilaterally decide they can waive precedent, congressional intent, and actual legislative language as senators have scrupulously debated and compromised on. if we do not stand together as the united states senate, we will be ceding our authority to t
the president of the united states call on people to pray for those lost, he calls on people to observe a moment of silence and then go out and do community service. he calls it patriot day and go and form commupt service. >> gretchen: he does say on the end of it. he signs it in the year of our lord 2012 . god is mentioned there and not in his message to the american people. >> brian: i think it is important and interesting that no politicians are going to see . i heard them say that is not good. it is good to cope politics out of this in the election year. i think that is the mayor's intention . >> steve: i think. just hear from family and friends. and that will start about 8:48 and you will see it live right here on folks news channel. >> gretchen: nightmare for extreme make over. a victim of a car jack his one year old son in the car. >> brian: thousands of terrorist being be set free. should we give our keys to the afghan government and should they be letting them go. that's next. ♪ come ♪ come on up for a ride. ♪ come on up. ♪ begin. tomato, obviously. haha. there's more than tha
investment, which, in turn, would lower the growth of incomes in the united states. and so, while we talk about growing the economy and economic growth and the need to get businesses around this country hiring again, at the same time there is a negative pressure being place odd them because congress can't do its job to control spending. $16 trillion in debt. you mentioned it was nearly $51,000 for every man, woman and child. we have a 10-month-old, he owes $51,000 as a share of the federal debt. $51,000 a piece. and that negative pressure, that mounting debt, deficits that are over $1 trillion a year, makes it moran more difficult for businesses to have access to the capital they need to grow and make it difficult for companies to operate because they find themselves competing with the federal government for those scares resources. next thing, the government will have to look at tax increases. and so the challenges our bases face, congress, can you get government out of the way so we can let america work and run our businesses the way we want to, not the way washington wants to. but at th
tells all about pakistan's spy agency. saying that pakistan's government hates the united states and only pretending to like us to get aid money. i guess we suspected it? >> i think what the doctor has focused on is the inner service intelligence service, isi, the arm of the military that helped arm the mujahedin, that helped create taliban. >> greta: and haqqani network? >> they have funded them for more than 20 years fighting the soviets. it's no surprise. i think isi hates the united states. the issue has been whether the radicals will take over the country and supply of nuclear weapons. >> greta: is the isi part of the rad kalsz? >> absolutely. >> greta: who is securing the nuclear weapons? >> not the isi. but there is no doubt to me that those weapons are incredibly vulnerable. that is why the strategy of the united states is to grit our teeth and talk to what is left of the civilian government and authority and to the military that are not radical and prevent this cancer from taking over. >> greta: thinking why are we giving this money, billions of dollars who people who ha
terrorists from entering united states. "usa today" on their front page "as time passes." it says here -- host: p.j., a democrat, new jersey. you are up first. caller: i see this event as a different thing. i look at it from an engineering standpoint. this is the first time that steele has ever been melted by fire outside of a blast furnace. there was a tremendous chance to study this event that was not allowed. host: all right, virginia. parker, independent line. good morning. caller: we should be honoring those who lost their lives 10 years ago. and we should be helping those people need help with their health insurance from the blast. host: there is an update on that this morning in "of the baltimore sun." "the 70,000 surviving firefighters and other first responders who worked at the world trade center after the attack will be entitled to free monitoring treatment for some 50 forms of cancer." that is an update this morning on the part of the story. remember, you can also send us your comments via twitter, twitter.com/c-spanwj. or you can send us an e-mail, journal@c-span.org. john
discoverries, make it a bigger play for the united states of america to reduce imports. the president said last week in his acceptance speech, if we follow his plan we will be off imports by 2020. that is a nonsense statement. there is nothing in the president's plan that would bring us anywhere close unless we reduce demand by continued recession and use ever less oil which is one of the reasons that we have changed the import relationship, reduced demand because people can't afford to buy oil in this day and age at these prices. so they are reducing demand. but in terms of increasing production --. melissa: your bottom line argument is that we shouldn't step off the gas in other development areas just because we think that all of this other supply is coming on board? is there evidence that is what is going on? >> no. we've been emphasizing the shale plays because it is private land, with state permits. you know, drilling on federal lands is down 40% over the last three years. we have decreased our investments under federal jurisdiction while we have increased private and state jurisdictional
that as a man accepts his party's nomination for president of the united states, to be our commander in chief, he didn't even mention the war we were fighting, which will be our longest war, not to mention he didn't mention anything about veterans and our sacred obligation to them. i find it stunning. i find his comments in the aftermath of that stunning. his response to bill crystal's criticism and fox news' criticism of him, it's remarkable. what i have been talking about, martin, is what an exceptional president and commander in chief president obama has been. he's done exactly what he said he was going to do by ending a war in iraq, setting us on a path to hand over authority in afghanistan by 2014. making sure that we refocused our efforts on going after al qaeda in afghanistan and pakistan, decimating al qaeda. you saw the news yesterday what happened in yemen. proving the mission to eliminate osama bin laden from the face of this earth, and also and importantly, this is something i'm not sure romney and ryan understand, honoring the commitment we have to our veterans when they return.
the president gives the order that the united states is ready to launch a strike. of course, the israeli counter question was, okay, when would that happen? if iran does not submit to any of the international demand, will you strike? at that point the american administration in all the talks, high-ranking officials have declined on giving any sort of specific promise. >> warner: how does the u.s. election calendar play into prime minister netanyahu's calculations here? >> well, i think it plays quite heavily. prime minister netanyahu would never admit that. but we see a line of increasing tension. some of it is deliberately between the israeli government and the american administration. as close as we get to the election. it is clear that the white house asked israel and put quite a lot pressure not to launch a pre-emptive strike at least not before the elections in order not to create an oil crisis that would damage the obama campaign. on the other hand we know from quite close ties between the republican mitt romney and prime minister netanyahu. i think that netanyahu, close as we get to the e
and recommit to the principles of values that made these great united states unlike any other nation that the world has ever known. because of you and your spirit that cannot be defeated. we honor our values which means we will continue to talk about god because god blessed this great nation. and we will uphold -- the national security. god bless you all. you've got 57 days. let's make this happen, ladies and gentlemen. >> they love him. united states unlike any other nation that the world has ever known. because of you and your spirit that cannot be defeated. we honor our values which means we will continue to talk about god because god blessed this great nation. and we will uphold -- the national security. god bless you all. you've got 57 days. let's make this happen, ladies and gentlemen. >> they love him. >>> and so there are just 57 days left in pat murphy's campaign to restore sanity to florida's 22nd congressional district. and the wor tridion safety cell which can withstand over three and a half tons. small in size. big on safety. she was a picky eater. well, now i'm her diet
the administration that the united states (no audio) take military action if other diplomatic effort have failed. >> warner: when the israelis talk about a red line, what is it exactly they want? what do they want president obama to say or do? >> i'm not sure that the israelis are speaking... seeking for a public promise. i'm quite certain that israel would (no audio) secretly. but to show israel that if diplomatic efforts and connection with iran in the next, i would say, six months to nine months fail, then an iran (no audio) would not agree to stop the enrichment and disassemble the nuclear site. then the administration would go for other options including the military strike. these red lines that the secretary of state, as we heard, refused to make secretly and publicly are the ones that would relax israel satisfied. as long as the administration intentionally is very vague on that and does not want to promise any sort of military action in the coming future, i think that we are going to see an ongoing tension increasingly between the two administrations. >> warner: what has the obama admini
't have an answer. >> bob: bills in the united states congress and -- >> greg: the employment would be worse. everybody talked about how the people are leaving the labor force, going to social security or back to school. if it had the same participation in 2009, the numbers would be at 11.4 -- yes, so in fact, his numbers are like dana wearing lifts. if you took the lifts out, it would be far smaller. >> eric: what is with the every month there is a revision? the 20,000 jobs came out of the economy from june. meanwhile, that was two months ago. here is what happened. the labor department puts up the number. it looks okay. here, but the real number is down here. they don't tell you about it. >> dana: in the bush years it was the other way. they'd be revised upward. >> eric: better. >> dana: yeah. so june would have been better than originally reported. why is it this way? why can't we get better stats on this. bob, cansky you one thing? >> bob: sure. >> dana: something paul ryan recommended in the past which i thought you would like, closing a lot of loopholes including a suggestion
about the united states and how that relates to what israel does against iran and what we do again to stop iran from developing nuclear weapons? >> it is a really interesting statement from netanyahu. hillary clinton came out yesterday and said no deadlines. i think the israelis want a firm deadline from the united states on when we will do military action because ultimately if you look at this operation, yes, the israelis can hit something, yes, they can do some damage, but only with the united states, only with our b-1 bombers and cruise missiles can you do significant long-term damage to the nuclear facilities in iran. so the question is, yes, the israelis could go alone, but it is always far more optimal to get on board with the united states. so i think this issue is going to remain a live issue into 2013, because i don't see how we have an off ramp. dagen: right. helima terrific to see you. we covered so much in little time. next time more time i promise. >> thanks. connell: new book that's come out from bob woodward. we will talk about that book on the day in which boehner h
. when you see these numbers, you'll say there has to be a way. in 2011, the united states took in about $1.1 trillion in income taxes. individual. but look at the bottom number below it. i mean, this makes my jaws drop. total tax break, credits, exclusions, your mortgage interest duction, state and local taxes. more money than we took in. okay, whatever you think about specific deduction, this screen is everything you need to know about how our tax system is really broken. so ending the state and local deduction alone would be $862.2 billion. the mortgage interest deduction, $214.6 billion. now, those are exactly the deductions mitt romney said he'd cut at a close doored fund-raiser in april. a reporter at the event wrote quote mitt romney said i'm probably going to eliminate for high income people, the second home mortgage deduction, romney said, adding he would also eliminate for state and property taxes. he made it clear it's for higher income people he wants to get rid of some of these deductions and mitt romney's defenders -- they can make the math work, so can that they? one is do
by how scared the president of the united states looked, how disoriented he looked, how it seemed like they did not know where they were going. and i just want to do a hat tip right here, which, again, in this environment you probably aren't supposed to do. you know what? while george bush looked scared and disoriented that day, that day only, rudy giuliani stepped up. and he became america's mayor on that day. and he kept people advised of what was going on and was a great leader for that time. >> it was one of the great acts of spiritual and popular leadership that we'll ever see. and, you know, mayor giuliani is a big churchillian. but he was reading and looking at in those days and weeks a book by john lucash called "five days of may" in may of 1940 between churchill and chamberlain and halifax. and it was a marvelous case of leadership of being there. >> well, and like churchill and we're not comparing him to churchill, but for that time, though, like churchill, part of it was leadership, part of it was a great act. telling people, and by the way, that's what kept the british peop
, sadly adopted by the united states congress at the request of president bill clinton back in 1993 which said rather than just saying gays can open -- can serve openly in the military which is what we should have done and what clinton should have done, he was afraid of the pentagon, afraid of the generals probably could not get that passed in the congress to tell the truth at that time. so instead an open invitation for gays and lesbians to serve in the military. lgbt folks. he said here's what we're going to have. this policy, don't ask, don't tell. yes, you can serve as long as you never tell anybody you're gay. which was just dumb as hell! and it didn't work, of course. and a lot of really, really good people got thrown out of the military either because they refused to live a lie or because of the fact that somebody ratted on them, knew they had a girlfriend or boyfriend or whatever. ratted on them and they get thrown out and we lost a lot of people particularly a lot of people who spoke arabic and we were really
you. god bless the united states of america. >> here's allen west's interpretation of that ad for his audience at the republican jewish coalition in bow contaca florida last night. >> they want to bring out an old soviet marxist theme called forward. >> yeah. yeah. you heard them. allen west had the full approval of his audience with that. including the members of the audience who are currently being kept alive by a socialist program called medicare. but allen west wasn't there just to tear down the president and decode his soviet marxist soviet socialist messaging. he was there to give republicans their marching orders. >> we are going to go forward. >> what? allen west just finished explaining that the word forward is a soviet markist soviet socialist something or other and then he used that very same word in telling his audience what to do? of course, his audience immediately jumped out of their seats are you crazy how do you expect us to listen to you. and of course the republican jewish coalition bouncers must have thrown him out of the room and told him to never insult their int
. is that any reason to make some guy president of the united states? is it. there's a reason obama got a bounce and romney did a thud. one guy people really love in charlotte giving the speeches of their lives, bill and michelle and deval patrick and castro. remember what romney got? chris christie up there giving testimonials to themselves. they barely got around to paying for their supper they were so full of themselves. romney has had two chippies, going over to get acquainted with the brits and going to tampa to get the kudos. in both cases he ended up laying more eggs than the easter bunny but people like the easter bunny. joining me is howard fineman and jim vandehei. it seems to me what happened the last two weeks was patently obvious. within convention worked, one didn't. one was sweet, one was sour. one you felt the vibes of happiness. the other one was you felt something but it was usually hatred of the president. >> yeah. well, chris, i spent every evening on the floor of the convention at both conventions, and at the republican convention there was a dutiful feel to it, and as you s
of events in far off places that have an enormous impact here because the united states is in the eyes of so many people who are opposed to our system of government and our alliances, the devil incarnate and today this is a very sophisticated, cold blooded, widespread attack carried out with the most chilling kind of efficiency on several of the great nerve centers of our system of government and our way of life. >> you've been watching an msnbc living history event, 9/11 as it happened. good day. i'm chris jansing. at ground zero are the footprints of the twin towers that once stood tall. this morning hundreds of relatives of the more than 2,700 people killed at ground zero are gathered along with police and firefighters, to hear the annual reading of the names of the fallen. on this 11th anniversary of the attacks, only family members, not politicians, appeared at the podium to read those names. at the white house, the president and first lady observed a moment of silence at 8:46 a.m., the time the first plane struck the world trade center. that was followed by a wreath ceremony at the pen

information in may that there was a cell in the united states that was planning to strike. they were getting information that it was going to be a big operation. there were going to be mass casualties. one of the big problems you had, though, was getting past the level of disbelief. you have to remember that the bush administration came in. the republicans had been out of the white house. during that time national security went from countries to being about guys on the tops of mountains in afghanistan. they just didn't buy it. so when you had the cia coming in and saying al qaeda, the pentagon pushed back and said, no, no. it's a fake. bin laden isn't a real threat. he's just trying to gin stuff up so we don't pay attention to iraq. >> kurt, speaking of iraq, one of the things that i'm still trying to figure out is how exactly and why exactly we ended up going to war with iraq. can you take us behind the scenes in that decision-making process? >> the decision-making process was really ugly. there are a few things that come out in "500 days." one is that the defense intelligence agency did an
